Hi sweet fwiendses
I've been happily playing at my wun evewyday .  the weathew is still pwetty hot, but I can smell that thewe is a change coming and I'm kind of excitewed about it..I do love summew, but it's been hot fow way too long

I dunk my head and most of my body in the little pool , but even wif that, I am panting like mad aftew chasing my ball..
I'm weady fow some mowe tempewate weathew

while thewe, I stawted thinking about all the fuwwkids who awen't as lucky as I am and need ouw help cause they awe eithew sick ow don't have loving homes of theiw own

I know all of you think of this many times too and want to help

I justed to wemind you that one of the easiest things you can do is wemembew to go to the Animal Wescoo site button

on my sidebaw and pwess on it evewy day..it's a tiny little thing, but it might help some fuwwkids a little
and I want to yell and shout and wemind you  to look in youw piggy banks and maybe find some gween papews to send to the White dog Awmy and theiw vewy impawtant wowk to fight that howwibull C thing that can huwt and kill ouw hoomans as well as ouw fuwwfwiends..I have a diwect link on top of my sidebaw fow it

Thewe awe so many othew fundwaisews and I know it can be ovewwhelming..I don't want to pwessoowe you, just make you wemembew that if you pawsibully can help in some way wif the cause of youw choice..

thewe awe many woggies doing twanspawt , like Khywa (the queen of twanspawts) and now even The Houston Pittie Pack and maybe we could help them in theiw vewy impawtant wowk too

these awe thoughts that go thwoo my mind, knowing that I am a vewy lucky lucky doggie and have so many kind fwiends who make a diffewence

thank you vewy vewy much
smoochie kisses

Dearest Furend,
I am so very much THRILLED and THANKFUL fur TWO thingys today. Furst is that YOU have decided to continue as Blogville's Dispensess of Brilliant Advice on issues of Love and other thingys. WHEW!! I did NOT know what we would do had you resigned this most valuable cabinet pawsition.
Next I am very much thrilled that you mentioned clicking on the Blue thingy on your sidebar. Some of us KNEW what it was fur.. and had gotten Laxativish about doing it... DAILY. Some, new to Blogville prolly didn't EVEN know what it was fur. I am sure that there will be a flurry of clicking going on after you very gentle reminder. Most of us get soooooo much and we need to do some thingys fur those who are NOT as furtunate.
BLESS you girrrrrl fur BOTH thingys!!!

My sweet woofie friend you are a sweetie for thinking about others and we must all do that too because we are the lucky one's and there are so many who are not. I have to say you are looking so good in your photo's. Hugs GJ xx

Finn said...

That is a really good reminder for us peeps to get off our bums and think about some other folks out there.

Hope you're enjoying the change in weather!

Gus said...

Thank you for the reminderer. We make muzzer click every day, and we have sent some stuffs to the white dog army, and we have power of the paw going whenever it is needed (like, always!) but it is so sweet of you to remind us of this most impawtant thing.

Oh Miss Asta, you are always thinking of other dogs and cats in need. What a good soul you are! I am proud to call you my friend.

Thank you for your good wishes for Sweet Pea and Buddy. We almost had Buddy this morning, but he backed out of the trap at the last minute. My mom is sick with worry. Sweet Pea seems a little better today, but we know the end is near ...

Your pal, Pip

P.S; It's nice and cool here in Chi-Town. I will try to send it your way.

You know OurMoma needs help with priorities, don't you. Thank you for helping us bring her attention to the things that really matter that she has been sort of neglecting for the past several ... well, honestly ... weeks. What would we do without you?

Missing you, still.

White Dog Blog said...

Dearest most kind-hearted friend, we are so honored to know you. You are noble and have a genuine understanding that your good fortune lays upon you an obligation to help those with need in the world. You are wise to realize and remind us that every step, no matter how small makes a difference.

Do you know the story of the starfish...it is one of my favorites: A young human was walking along the beach picking up starfish stranded by the tide and carrying them back out to the water. He spent lots of time doing this and was watched by an old man. Finally the man said, "Why are you wasting your time, there are too many starfish to save, your efforts make no difference!" The little human picked up another starfish and as he set it gently in the water, he replied, "it made a difference to that one, didn't it?"

May the Universe bless you and your family for the starfish you help to save...Thank you.

Well, my Miss most beautiful Asta. You are fery right about new doggies who do not know about the click every day fing. At least, my hu-Mumma has seen it on eferypup's bloggies.

Asta, so sweet and thoughtful and loving as ever. We clicked today on the Animal Rescue Site thingie, and will keep on doing so.

I do hope you will enjoy some lovely Fall weather and have fun leaping around in all the piles of prettily coloured leaves as they collect on the street. So many interesting sniffs! I love this time of year.

Hey Asta!
Wow, you can have some of my suddenly-cooler weather! It was only 43 degrees here this morning. That's too big of a drop to suit me. Anyway, thanks for the great reminder to always help others.
Grr and Woof,

hi asta,

we're wishing fur the coolie toolie weather to come too.. and wishing fur the best with all our furriends too.
woo have the BEST heart!


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

OK...we clicked and just like Frankie Furtive said, we've gotten extremely laxative about it...um...he did say that...I need to pop over to see him about his marriage proposal to me...(Lacie coughs slightly as even though she practically tossed herself at him on your last post, there was no proposal...one might speculate that she may now go and threaten him...)

So we went for walkies today at the park with the poos and Scruffy went rodent mad and got burrs ALL over his beardie. I um was well sniffing a smashed chipmunk on the street (Mumsie missed it) and well I so need a beard wash now.

So I went to the Joules site to generously purchase those lovely wellies for her and get this...I single pawedly crashed her credit card. Evidently we APP A LASCH A Burgers set off alarms at Citi Card if we aren't shopping at our usual mundane stores. Never fear...I resolved the issue. What? No, I wasn't going to use my own broom earned cash...sheesch.

XXOO and enjoy the coldness!

So very eloquently put dear Asta!

You are correct, it has been very hot and maybe that is why the hoomans have forgottn things. So I will have my Mom get back into the swing of things right away!

Your heart is so big I don't see how it fits inside of you. You are always so caring of your friends and give reminders to help those in need. What a sweetheart you are.
Yes, there is a change in the weather coming and the mom doesn't want it to go to cold but I am afraid she must just get ready cause it isn't far away.
Love to you and your folks.

Angel Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Oh forgot. Happy pirates day to you.
